The Liberal Press and How We are Being Bamboozled

"The people of the U.S. owe their Independence & their liberty, to the wisdom of descrying in the minute tax of 3 pence on tea, the magnitude of the evil comprised in the precedent. Let them exert the same wisdom, in watching against every evil lurking under plausible disguises, and growing up from small beginnings." --James Madison

The liberal media once again showed their bias when Bill Maher appeared on the Larry King Show and called Tea Party supporters teabaggers and accused them of racism while dropping the N-word without being challenged by King.

When a liberal uses a derogatory term like teabagger or actually uses the N-word the mainstream media just sighs a collective yawn and moves on.  But if a conservative uses similar terminology it’s time to hold a public execution. Just ask Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Then again CNN never claimed that they were fair and balanced.

This is just another example of the liberal left-wing media’s bias in reporting. If one of their darlings blurts out a racial, ethnic or gender smear there is little or no coverage or outrage. On the other hand when a conservative, like Laura Schlessinger makes a racial analogy using a banned word, she is forced to resign from her radio show, which she hosted for 20 years.

This is certainly not a defense of Laura Schlessinger for using ill advised language on a national radio show, but a commentary on today’s double standard and bias in the media. Maher okay, Schlessinger out.

Several Blogs back I wrote about the bias in the media and the vileness of the left. In this Blog I want to write about the hypocrisy and how we are being manipulated by the left and their minions in the liberal and sometimes conservative press.

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media reports; “Andrew Young writes in his book, The Politician, of how “progressive” politics involving rhetoric about the rich and poor is an absolute fraud. The current White House-generated controversy about tax cuts “for the rich” is an extension of what former Democratic senator and failed presidential candidate John Edwards had tried to master. It is one of the oldest tricks in the progressive playbook. The progressives believe their path to success lies in Marxist-oriented class warfare. They want to generate envy and jealousy toward people with more money and bigger houses and cars.

Kincaid continues; “Edwards was famous for decrying the existence of “two Americas,” rich and poor. He wanted to cut the rich down to size. In fact, Edwards was himself a rich trial lawyer who received $400 haircuts. He was a complete fraud and an adulterer with a “love child” he didn’t want to admit. Many progressives in addition to Glover were fooled by him.”

“Young says about Edwards, “As a candidate, he had sold himself to the public as an especially moral, Christian family man.” It worked—for a while, with the help of the liberal media.” They would not look into this man’s past with any of the zeal they do for conservative candidates like Sarah Palin or Christine O’Donnell. They do not want to report on anything that would contradict their narrative.”

“In fact, the multi-millionaire Edwards was not only a notorious adulterer but money hungry, to the extent of wanting to supplement his fortune as he was running for president with a salary of $500,000 a year with a hedge fund called Fortress Financial. He got big money for his campaign run from the super-rich and trial lawyers richer than he was.”

“The progressives believe their path to success lies in Marxist-oriented class warfare. They want to generate envy and jealousy toward people with more money and bigger houses and cars.” This class warfare has been going on since the days of Woodrow Wilson and is the mainstay political strategy of the Democrat party.

Kincaid adds; “Young believed that Edwards was one of the “great progressives” that came out of North Carolina and notes that one of Edwards’ big Hollywood supporters was the actor Danny Glover, who also happens to be an advocate of the Marxist policies of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. During one appearance with Edwards, Glover said Edwards understood the needs of the working poor and that his campaign for president was “telling their story.” Glover said, “This is a campaign about real democracy.”

Edwards was famous for decrying the existence of “two Americas,” rich and poor. He wanted to cut the rich down to size. In fact, Edwards was himself a rich trial lawyer who received $400 haircuts. He was a complete fraud and an adulterer with a “love child” he didn’t want to admit. Many progressives in addition to Glover were fooled by him.

Young says about Edwards, “As a candidate, he had sold himself to the public as an especially moral, Christian family man.” It worked—for a while, with the help of the liberal media.

Kincaid writes; “One of the most important lessons that he does get right is that the mainstream media were almost completely useless in ferreting out this scandal, and that it was the tabloid National Enquirer that got the goods on Edwards and his mistress, campaign aide Rielle Hunter. As part of the cover-up, Young took the blame, under Edwards’ direction, by issuing a false statement that he was the father.” After three years we still cannot find about President Obama’s academic record or accomplishments.

“In fact,” Young writes about the major media reaction, “if you got your news from the big papers or TV networks, you probably didn’t know a scandal was rumored.” The cover-up was working. The major media refused to believe this progressive champion was a first-rate deceiver.

I can recall watching the twenty-something year-old Democrat “strategists” talking heads during the 2008 primary season touting the wonders of Edwards with absolutely no challenge from the TV talk show hosts or interviewers. This was certainly the case with Kirstin Powers of the FNC. Christine O’Donnell should be so fortunate.

(I paused writing this Blog last night. At 08:30 PDST just heard that Christine O’Donnell bowed out of her interview with Mike Wallace on FNC. I think this was big mistake on her part. She claimed she had been over scheduled and cold not make the interview. Whether this is true or spin it’s a mistake on her part or those of the people giving her advice. This was a chance for her to clear the air on national television with an honest interviewer. In bowing out she opens the door for others to define her. I hope she does not have advisers in the vein of those who gave Sarah Palin such bad advice.)

Another recent example of the way the liberal press bends the narrative is the recent WikiLeaks story. The person who leaked much of the documents and videos to Julian Assange of WikiLeaks is Private First Class Bradley E. Manning.

Jonah Knox writes in Accuracy in Media; “The Army had to have known that Bradley Manning was a homosexual based on the readily-available evidence. This means that the Army knew that Manning was a homosexual and yet did nothing about it—until Manning’s sexuality apparently led him to betray America and jeopardize lives. Manning, who served as an intelligence analyst and had a security clearance, has been arrested and is reportedly under suicide watch.”

In Manning’s case, he had a Facebook page devoted to homosexual causes that included a photo of him marching in a gay pride parade. His associates said he went to gay bars and he talked openly about his homosexuality to others. Several have said that he was angry with the military because of the failure to repeal the homosexual exclusion policy. Incredibly, however, the Army may not have considered any of the credible evidence that he was a homosexual.”

In the scandal involving the theft and release of classified military information that could cost the lives of U.S. military personnel, the British Telegraph newspaper reported that the American soldier at the center of the scandal was “openly homosexual” and apparently held a grudge against the U.S. because of the military’s anti-gay policy.

In another bizarre twist, reliable reports suggest that Manning, the U.S. Army Intelligence analyst accused of leaking the classified information to the website, was not only a homosexual but was considering a sex change. Manning was arrested at the end of May and is being detained by U.S. authorities. I cite this example because it shows how the media will bend a story to satisfy one of its little darlings, in this case the homosexual lobby

The Fort Hood shootings were reported the same way. Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army major serving as a psychiatrist killed 13 soldiers and wounded 30 others in his Islamist inspired shooting spree at the Fort Hood US military base on November 5, 2009.

Hasan’s ties to radical Islamists organizations and his claim of being a soldier of Allah were constantly downplayed in the mainstream media and by the Obama administration’s Department of Defense. The Islamists is another group the mainstream media does not want to “offend’. They consistently receive a pass as we talk more and more about the so called “moderate” Muslims. Islam by its very nature is not moderate.

Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor who prosecuted Islamist terrorists writes in his book, "How Islam and the Left Sabotage America", the Muslin Brotherhood have studied the tactics of the homosexual lobby and have build a strategy based on their success in the media to bring Sharia to the United States. McCarthy states that Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, "spiritual" leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has claimed he will only use terror on a limited basis in their jihad against the West. They will, however, use the same tactics the homosexual lobby has used to make any reference to homosexuality in our press politically incorrect. In simple words the press is cooperating with al-Qaradawi in his fifth column to bring Sharia to the United States through Da’wah.

Creeping Sharia has already extended to the dietary practices of British dhimmis, who are involuntarily consuming meats ritually slaughtered and prayed over in good Islamic practice.

Although this Daily Mail investigation of the stealth Islamization of the British meat industry is largely fixated on the "animal cruelty" aspect of the story, the findings provide another disturbing example of Britain's steady Islamization, as evidenced by its "stealth halal-ization":

According to the Daily Mail report; “Schools, hospitals, pubs and famous sporting venues such as Ascot and Twickenham are controversially serving up meat slaughtered in accordance with strict Islamic law to unwitting members of the public. All the beef, chicken and lamb sold to fans at Wembley has secretly been prepared in accordance with sharia law, while Cheltenham College, which boasts of its ‘strong Christian ethos', is one of several top public schools which also serves halal chicken to pupils without informing them. Even Britain's largest hotel and restaurant group Whitbread, which owns the Beefeater and Brewers Fayre chains, among many others, has admitted that more than three-quarters of its poultry is halal.”

Sharia law expressly forbids knocking the animal out with a bolt gun, as is usual in British slaughter­houses. Instead, it must be sentient when its throat is cut, and the blood allowed to drip from the carcass while a religious phrase in praise of Allah is recited.

For years the slow infusion of Sharia has been creeping into British society and law courts.  This has been done without the consent of the British people, but with their ambivalence towards Islam and its tenants. While Jews eat kosher food, they have never demanded that the entire nation do so. The very word Islam means submission. This submission is dictated by the Koran and Sharia law.

If you watch the BBC or any of the British TV shows you will see a constant stream of sympathetic Muslim reports and characters while Christians and Jews are downplayed and criticized. This Islamists view is slowly creeping into out media. We no longer portray terrorists as Muslims as we don’t want to offend them. At the same time we will label Christians and right-wing fundamentalist who want to abolish reproductive rights and murder abortion doctors. If you back fifteen years you will find hundreds of examples of Muslim sponsored terror attacks and one example of a Christian killing an abortion doctor.

Even the Pope, on his first visit to Britain, expressed fears that the country was not doing enough to preserve traditional Christian values and customs. In a strongly worded speech to Parliament, he said: "There are those who argue that the public celebration of festivals such as Christmas should be discouraged, in the questionable belief that it might somehow offend those of other religions or none."

What I find incredibly ironic is the very people who preach tolerance and understanding to Islam will be the first to be slaughtered under the laws of Sharia. Homosexuals, blasphemers, idolaters and pornographers will be at the front of the line.

McCarthy writes in his book; “In 1977, Youssef Nada, a master organizer who has been a Brotherhood member since the 1940, convened a meeting of Islamist luminaries, including Sheikh Qaradawi, in Lugano, Switzerland. Its purpose, was to "set up a structure to guide the growth of political Islam in Europe and the United States.": Nada was the director of the al-Taqwa Bank of Lugano, and for years he has been suspected by Swiss and American authorities of laundering money, for al Qaeda, Hamas and various other terrorist groups. As a result he has been specially designated as a global terrorist under both American and United Nations legal procedures for the past nine years Within weeks after the 9/11 atrocities, Swiss authorities raided Nada's posh Campione villa.”

“Included in the documents seized during the raid was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December I , 1982, which outlines a 12 -point strategy to “establish an Islamic government on earth"-identified as The Project. According to testimony given to Swiss authorities by Nada, the unsigned document was prepared by "Islamic researchers" associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“What makes The Project so different from the standard "Death of America, Death to Israel, and "Establish the global caliphate!" Islamist rhetoric is that it represents a flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the "cultural invasion" of the West. Calling for the utilization of various tactics, ranging from immigration, infiltration, surveillance, propaganda, protest, deception, political legitimacy and terrorism, The Project has served for more than two decades as the Muslim Brotherhood "master plan.”. Rather than focusing on terrorism as the sole method of group action, as is the case with Al-Qaeda, in perfect postmodern fashion the use of terror falls into a multiplicity of options available to progressively infiltrate, confront, and eventually establish Islamic domination over the West.”

“The seizures of the Brotherhood's game plan leave no doubt about its intentions. As aptly described by the former U.S. intelligence analyst Joseph Myers, these Islamists seek nothing less than "the usurpation and replacement" of America's foundations- Judeo-Christianity and Western liberalism- by Islam.”

We live in a nation with a Constitution that gives each citizen the right of free speech and religion. We believe in classical liberalism and the God given rights of the individual. Islam is like communism, but under a theocracy. Due to our liberal attitudes of freedom and individual rights we have a very difficult time accepting the game plan of the Islamists. Our media certainly doesn’t. We are not prone to conspiracy theories. The plan of the Muslim Brotherhood is like no other conspiracy theory. It is a dream the Islamist have had for a thousand years. They will never tell us what they really want as they practice Taqiyya (see my Blog on Lying in the Qur'an) which means that lying to protect or advance Islam is an honorable pursuit.

There are over 2,200 mosques in the United States and the crowning jewel will by the Park51 Islamic Cultural Center at Ground Zero. With the help of our media and the patience of the Islamists we may see a day when our Constitution is replaced by Sharia. As the Muslims say “Insha'Allah (Inshallah).”

This is an update to this post. This morning I discovered another example of The Project. Nonie Darwish reports in; “‘Bridge builder’ Feisal Abdel Rauf of the Ground Zero mosque, has been exposed not as a man of goodwill, but as a cunning and calculating stealth jihadist who supports the creation of an Islamic State, ‘The Ummah’, right here in America.”

“Rauf gave an interview on June 20th, 2006 in which he spoke of his game plan for achieving an Islamic State without borders, which in his mind has previously existed and should have continued to exist, if not for Western interference in the last century. To prove his point he gave the example of the existence of Greeks and other minorities in Egypt and Turkey, which he cited as a sign of Islamic tolerance and its refusal to establish a nation state with a border. I wonder why that is? Could it be that the Islamic state does not want defined borders that might restrain its ferocious appetite to expand and conquer non-Muslim infidel ‘dar Al harb’ states who like defined borders?”

“We have designed our Cordoba Initiative to be designed, in other words, we have 5 major areas of our program. So we have foreign policy, is one area, you have communications is another area, you have education as the third area, for example, you have intra-Islamic issues is the fourth area, arts and culture is the fifth area.”

Why would Cordoba, which he claims to be “cultural center”, have a “Foreign Policy” section that would develop “Strategy Action Plays”? What is he going to educate Americans of? Will he send Muslim coaches to American schools to teach sensitivity training to watch for the feelings of Muslims or might he demand to educate American kids how to pray to Allah?
